Join us for our Christmas dinner at the Falcon Hotel, Lammas Street, Carmarthen for 1 pm on Thursday 13th December 2018. See menu for details.

Marie Geary has already booked the meal and secured a reservation for us. It will be a 3 course meal at a cost of £20 per person. Some money has already been paid in by members and been paid to the Falcon as a deposit. The outstanding £10 or £20 (depending on whether you have paid a deposit or not) will need to be with Marie by the end of October. We are grateful to Marie for making the arrangements.
